standard procedure to install missing files in rhel 5.2 ?


Hi,

Just thought I would write my first post. I am basically very new to linux.. I have rhel 5.2 sever. while the system booting the following
error had shown.

touch: can't touch '/var/lib/random-seed ; No such file or directory
chmod; can't access'/var/lib/random-seed ; No such file or directory

touch; can't touch '/var/log/wtmp ; No such file or directory
chgrp; can't access '/var/run/utmp; No such file or directory

INIT:Id "x" respawing too fast: disabled for 5
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit; line 914: /var/log/dmesg: No such file or directory

touch: can't touch /var/run/getkey-done : No such file or directory
touch: can't touch /var/lock/subsys/kudzu; No such file or directory
touch: can't touch /var/lock/subsys/network; No such file or directory
starting auditd: [failed]

please anyone help me, how to fix this issue. I searched in google but I couldn't get any answer. Kindly tell me the standard procedure how to update these missing files from souce (i.e cd, dvd).

Thanks in Advance

.
... more wild ........

Your '/var/' directory is on another partition.
And is not mounted and / or not included in /etc/fstab/

Solution : Use a rescue cd / live Linux OS to boot into the
computer .. and inspect, what you have, and what is missing.
